Cover Bands d-h
Album reviews quoted below give insight into the world of covers bands
Yeah Yeah Yeah s -Fever To Tell
Yeah Yeah Yeahs were almost finished before they started. Their debut EP-released in spring 2002-had enjoyed staggering acclaim. Just like some cover bands, there followed the familiar record company "bidding war," but the art college trio recoiled from the attention. Recorded in Brooklyn and mixed in London by guitarist Nick Zinner and legendary engineer/producer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails), it is an album that takes the arty sounds of post-millennium underground New York-elaborate guitar histrionics, no bass, brutalized disco/techno beats, garage-rock ramalam-and shackles them to O's feline yelp. The coolest and cleverest record of 2003.
TheThrills - So Much For The Cityc2oo3
Having told their relatives that they had landed a major record deal (they hadn't), the amiable members of one of Dublin's most exciting newcomers spent a fourmonth life-changing siesta in a beach house on Mission Beach, San Diego, where they pieced together their acclaimed debut album. Many cover bands wish they could have such luxury. Run through with a pop-pleasant esthetic, the album is a collection of summer songs laden with enough indie grunt to satisfy alternative music fans as well. "Don't Steal Our Sun" contains more assertive vocals and frisky drums, while "Big Sur" is perhaps the song with the most genuinely original voice.
Kings of Leon I Youth And Young Manhood
Rumour and speculation were dispelled when brothers Nathan, Caleb, and Jared Followill plus guitarist cousin Matthew released their debut album.
With the naturalistic production of Ryan Adams' collaborator Ethan Johns and almost deliberately lame artwork illustrating the band's heads, Youth And Young Manhood felt as vintage as their hipster jeans, like a lost classic discovered at a garage sale. From the urgency of opener "Red Morning Light," singer Caleb drawls like Mick Jagger on moonshine as the band spin southern gothic tales of murders, dodgy preachers, and sordid encounters."
Dizzee Rascal - Boy In Da Corner
Dizzee wrote and produced the album himself, describing the alienation and confusion with pinpoint accuracy. Dizzee's production drew from old school hip hop, garage, drum 'n' bass, rock, electro, and any other black music you care to name, at the same time sounding utterly alien. Ear-splitting snare drums, snatches of arcade games, police sirens, unsteady, drunken bass lines, and off-kilter drums created a paranoid sound bed that mirrored Dizzee's headspace and environment. Only some cover bands could match this. Boy In Da Corner deservedly won the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2003.
